HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Organize with Unordered Lists

I keep on rechecking my code and the program keeps on telling me that I need to add an image tag but I thought I did?

Here is the code I typed out:

<li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> </a> </li>

Isn't <img src=...... the image tag? I think I am doing it correctly and the images display but I cant figure out why the program says its wrong

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>

      <a href="index.html">

The instructions specify not to add any links (a hrefs). One of yours (img 6) has a comma in it instead of a period. In any case, the instructions say not to, so take out the <a> tags and I think you'll be just fine!

Yep, I think you need to take out the links here.
